Music educators have long understood that musical skills and concepts are best taught through quality literature. This resource shows general music teachers how they can truly get the most out of the songs they teach by bringing them back year after year to buttress and reinforce learning by combining the learn-by-doing approach of Orff Schulwerk with the sequencing of music skills in Music Learning Theory. This book focuses specifically on how repurposing literature throughout a child's elementary education serves and enhances both methods. Divided into two sections, the first contains a brief explanation of Music Learning Theory, Orff Schulwerk, and the conceptual lesson plan; the second section containing sample lesson plans that showcase how the same song can serve different musical goals every year in grades K-5. Each lesson plan is complete with information about concepts, skills, objectives, equipment, the teaching process, and assessment.
